Social swim session planned for Talkin Tarn
Last updated at 11:52, Saturday, 28 April 2012
A social swim has been organised at Brampton’s latest swimming hotspot.
The event on May 12 has been organised at Talkin Tarn by open water swim group, Wild about Swimming. It is aimed at people of all abilities, and offers the chance to meet like-minded enthusiasts or to take the plunge for the first time.
Pauline Squire, organiser, said that she read about the chance to now swim in the tarn, but felt the available hours limited the number of people who might want to dive in.
She explained: “As a pilot, Wild about Swimming have set up a social swim to show off the new venue and its facilities, and of course have a fab swim too.
“Swimmers so far are coming from all round the country – some travelling four or five hours to swim there.”
Pauline added: “Open water swimming is on the rise and Wild about Swimming is about getting swimmers safely through the transition from pool to open water, and to create a network of swimmers to swim with.”
The event is open to everyone, regardless of age or ability. Anyone is welcome to participate or simply come and view their friends and family having a dip.
For more information, or to register your interest, call Pauline on 07946 498923, or you can email email@example.com or search for Wild about Swimming on Facebook.
